    The Center for Early Childhood Education at Eastern Connecticut State University is committed to providing resources valuable to people involved in the field of Early Childhood education.

    The Center is developing an extensive archive of footage featuring young children, early childhood professionals engaged in teaching and interviews with experts in the field.

    Research is conducted on topics related to young children. Faculty partner with student researchers and early childhood professionals to observe and record children and teachers as well as child –teacher interactions.

    Studies have included “the relationship between play and children’s math abilities, “The effect of toys on children’s learning” and “the impact of teacher’s professional development on children’s early literacy skills”.
    On our official website, you will find a variety of videos featuring interviews with our professional staff and footage shot in early childhood classrooms. Check out the award winning Investigating and e-Clips series’ as well as grant funded training videos done with local, state and Federal agencies.

    A featured resource of the site is the Video clip Library for faculty and trainers, funded through our work with the Connecticut office of Early Childhood. The clip library is a comprehensive professional development tool, comprised of footage from centers and family child care homes all across the state of Connecticut. The clips cover a variety of topics and include footage of infants, toddlers, preschoolers and Kindergarteners.

  • Investigating Series Play all

    Investigations is the curriculum used by Eastern's Child and Family Development Resource Center (CFDRC). The curriculum was developed by CFDRC teachers and administrators in partnership with Dr. Jeffrey Trawick-Smith. The curriculum is centered around engaging projects—called "investigations"—on topics that are selected by children, teachers, and families. Each video in the Investigating... series captures one topic of investigation explored at the CFDRC. Videos include interviews with preschool and toddler teachers about how children engaged in literacy, math, science, art, and other activities through the three- or four-month investigation.

    E-clips are brief, professional development videos that provide teachers and caregivers with tips and ideas they can implement in their work with young children. Each e-clip features an expert describing how early childhood professionals can use the latest research to enhance children's learning. Interviews with classroom teachers and footage from preschool classrooms illustrate how educators can put theory into practice and capture authentic early childhood classroom experiences. Supplementing each e-clip are suggested readings, additional on-line resources, and discussion questions to support conversations within instructional teams or in staff meetings.
